Dennis Rodman's '48 Hours in Vegas' Will Be Turned Into a Movie

One of the most memorable moments of Dennis Rodman‘s career is being turned into a movie!

The 60-year-old former basketball player will executive produce the upcoming film 48 Hours in Vegas, which is inspired by two whirlwind days he spent in Las Vegas in the middle of the 1998 NBA Finals.

Here’s the official synopsis: “Picture it: Las Vegas, Nevada. 1998. The NBA Finals are in full swing. The Chicago Bulls are on the verge of completing their second threepeat in eight years. And Dennis Rodman, a groundbreaking cultural presence on and off the court and the team’s iconoclastic future Hall of Famer, defensive specialist and rebounding genius, has just bravely told coach Phil Jackson that he needs 48 hours in Vegas. Naturally it is a request that Jackson honors. Inspired by two whirlwind mythic days in Sin City, Lionsgate’s 48 Hours in Vegas will take audiences on Rodman’s madcap adventure with his skittish assistant GM and will detail a budding friendship that neither one of them ever thought was possible but will end up solving both of their problems.”

The movie will be produced by Oscar winners Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are the guys behind movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and The Mitchells vs. The Machines.

Dennis refused to follow the herd,” said Lord and Miller. “That is what made him a target and it’s also what made him a star. His weekend in Las Vegas is full of fun and hijinks but it is also full of important questions about the way public figures, and workers are treated, especially when their individuality is expressed so vividly.”

One of Dennis‘ ex-girlfriends revealed some eye-opening info about him last year.
